„I hope my studies may be an encouragement to other women, especially to young women, to devote their lives to the larger interests of the mind. It matters little whether men or women have the more brains; all we women need to do to exert our proper influence is just to use all the brains we have.“

—  Florence Rena Sabin, Accepting the Pictorial Review achievement award in 1929.
